Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 3 scallions, chopped (white and green parts separated)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 1/4 pounds turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 12 hard taco shells
  • 1 mango, cubed
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 head romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the carrot, scallion whites, chile powder and half of the tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes release their juices, about 3 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, breaking up the meat, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add half of the scallion greens and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, put the taco shells on a baking sheet and warm in the oven, about 6 minutes. Mix the mango with the lime juice in a medium bowl; sprinkle with chile powder. Add the remaining tomatoes and the scallion greens and toss.

  • Fill the taco shells with the sausage mixture and top with the lettuce, cheese and mango salsa.
